The risk of heart disease spikes exponentially around the age of 50. Hence, you need to have more foods that can lower cholesterol in your diet. Oats have beta-glucan a type of soluble fiber that helps in this. During digestion soluble fiber binds with cholesterol and pushes it out of your body, rather than stack up in your arteries.

3 grams of beta-glucan daily lowers both total and LDL cholesterol levels by 5-10%. People who follow an oats centric diet lower the risk of early death. Oats are a very easy and affordable habit that you can take up.
